Oh, the zazen of the Mahayana!
To this the highest praise!
Devotion, repentance, training,
The many paramitas--
All have their source in zazen.
Those who try zazen even once
Wipe away beginning-less crimes.

Song of Zazen -- Hakuin (Rinzai)

Fully agree. The problem with people today is simply one of ego-tism. It is simply much easier to convince oneself that some half-assed sitting with a vague psychological insight (probably read in a silly western zen book) is reality. People have deluded themselves through the centuries but in modern day America we are masters of delusion.
